Depression you are my shadow
even when It's a cloudy day.
It's like I can't even write anymore,
I never know what to say.

And mt heart feels so painful,
like it's constantly being destroyed.
It takes so much energy
to do the things I once enjoyed.

Sometimes I feel like doing nothing
because I don't feel real.
My dreams kill me at night
because they express what I conceal.

I feel so trapped in this world
I'd rather fade away
than suffer with this insanity
that I'm afraid to display.

I need someone's shoulder
even if it's a single tear.
And I need someone to listen to me
but, instead they only hear.

I am singled out from everyone
who lives in this crazy world
because I hide what traps me
and my emotions cannot be unfurled.

I don't know what to do
motivation is non existent
Happiness seems so far away
that my dreams become so distant

I used to have everything,
but I was too blind to see.
I lost so much of everything
that I even lost me.

This is so beautifully raw. Your writing really touches me because i am in a dark place as well write now and it seems like i cant write anything but darkness anymore.

A beautiful poem, if rather sad. It says a lot about the woes of unhappiness and the common desperation for comfort. If it is based on truth, then I'm sorry that you're going through this and I wish you well.

Thank you. All my poems are based on truth. I can only write when it's real.
